• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

BGL access libraries


I'm wondering if there are any libraries (I searched for them but didn't found anything) that will allow me to access BGL file content? I have small project on top of my head and I'd rather don't repeat the work (and errors) that many people already did. I'm interested in both free (of course this is preferred option) but as well payware solutions if in reasonable price.

What kind of information do you want to read from the bgl files?
What kind of information do you want to read from the bgl files?

As of now I'm interested in:
- airport info (runways with its parameters if possible, frequencies, maybe taxiways, latlon info)
- navaids informations
- general scenery information (type of layer and its geographical range)

I don't have libraries for that, my libraries (that I use in my tools) are more focused on the 3D models and their placement information. Maybe @scruffyduck has something, since what you want overlaps with the functionality of ADE. But I don't know if his libraries are available or not.
They are part of my tools and I have allowed other developers to use them (mainly the preview rendering bit).
What do you want to achieve? Then I can tell you if it's possible and how to do it. Also I would like to know what kind of application you are making with them.
for now i didn't start any app but i'm learning C# and i get a great progress and i worked with the simconnect

i'm thinking of programe that have same window in 3D like MCX ( i don't want to make a programme like mcx because it's already the greatest for sceneries )
i want to load an object and see the tagged animation ( and be able to control each animation separatelly )
and i need a programme that control a tagged animation in the sim ( by frames example : play from 0 to 20 only or from 50 to 70 )

why do i need that ? : because i want to equipe my sceneries with a small ground crew that do somethings when the Sode jetway is connected

hope my reply wasn't long , thnx for everything
